Save Empress Vintage

47884942_1588808983721632_r.jpegEmpress Vintage has been in the Berkeley community for over 9 years.  We have focused on community, events and providing high quality recycled vintage clothing.  Empress Vintage also supports members of our consignment collective, where they can sell vintage pieces in the shop.  With the forced closure of our brick & mortar storefront in Berkeley and our studio in San Francisco, we have been hit hard.  This fundraiser will help keep this small woman owned business going during this pandemic.  We appreciate any and all donations at this time to keep the dream alive of our thriving community spirit.

Our location in Berkeley includes our brick & mortar storefront as well as our backyard space AKA The Empress Garden.  We have had many events over the years, supporting artists and musicians.  

Empress Studio SF is a studio for the online store as well as a space available for rental for events & photo/video shoots.  

Because both locations have been shut down we can no longer receive customers, have events or rent the space.  

Thank you so much for support at this time!  Go Fund Me matches fundraisers that reach at least $500 #smallbusinessrelief ~  The money received from these funds goes toward rent and will allow Empress to thrive in years to come!
